"born in canada to an american mother, ted cruz became an instant u.s. citizen, but under canadian law he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement.

president obama said this, his attorney general, eric holder, was apparently listening. >> we all know that young african-american men disproportionately have involvement in criminal activities and violence. for a lot of reasons. a lot of it having to do with poverty. a lot of it having to do with disruptions in their neighborhoods, in their communities, failing schools, and all those things. and that's no excuse, but what we also believe in is that people, everybody should be treated fairly and the system should work for everyone. >> today the obama administration's attorney general announced important new changes in prosecutorial guidelines involving low-level non-violent drug offenses because federal law is littered with oppressive and unreasonable mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses, those mandatory minimum sentences can only be changed by congress. realizing that this congress will never take action in this area, the attorney general has decided to instruct his prosecutors to measure the charges they bring in criminal cases against the sentencing rules for those cases. t
